Open Networking Summit is coming up soon. The topics covered are broad, ranging from software-defined networking (SDN) in enterprises to service provider adoption of SDN/NFV. We’ve seen strong representation from academia in its early dates and telco requirements have also been covered in recent years. This time, there is a new spotlight on enterprise use of SDN. The keynote panel of SDN in Enterprises has speakers from Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, NSA, and Samsung SDS (a services group).
Let’s see what else at the conference will focus on the enterprise topic.
Solution ShowcaseThere will be a solution showcase, where companies demonstrate use cases collaboratively. This is a bit different from one-vendor exhibits in some trade shows, since it shows how technology from different companies are combined to create a solution, so it’s of great interest for end-users. Here are a few examples for data centers and enterprise that I’m curious about.
- Assuring Quality of Service for Real-Time applications using SDN – by Dell, Microsoft, and NEC
- Rich Network Services based on SDN/NFV Model in a Federated Public Cloud by Avi Networks, Cisco Systems, and OneConvergence
- Transforming how Service Providers deliver Networking-as-a-Service to Enterprise customers using SDN and Cloud by Brocade, Elbrys Networks and Tallac Networks.
See you in Santa Clara.
